...for the inspiration.
After several short stints of attending other colleges I finally wound up back home in Alaska with a strong commitment to obtain a degree. Currently, I am a student at the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau and I plan to graduate on May 4 with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Sciences. As a result I feel a strong need to thank the faculty of the Environmental Science Department for all their hard work and time they put into the program. Although some of my experiences with the "institution" have been trying at times, I have gained insight and have a new found enthusiasm for the future. Thank you for the inspiration to pursue goals and dreams that I had no idea existed within me until only recently. I would especially like to thank the following people who, be it idols, mentors, or heroes (or d. all of the above), made a profound difference in my life:
Karalyn Crocker-Bedford, instructor at the University of Alaska Southeast-Ketchikan, who planted the seed that grew into my love of the sciences, and the Environmental Science Instructors at the University of Alaska Southeast-Juneau, Todd Walters, Cathy Connor, Carl Buyers, Roman Motyka, and Eran Hood, who all helped me continue my love of the sciences (and of course my mother, Arlene Akers, for making all of this possible)
Thank you so much for putting up with me, giving me a positive outlook, and most importantly, making it fun and keeping it real! Thank you, Cathy for the research opportunities that I never imagined I would have been part of. I hope I make you proud out there. Also, hats off to my hardworking colleagues for being unique, complicated, and sometimes even supportive. Good luck and I'll see you in the real world.
